I have become disgusted with the belligerence Ann Coulter has toward single mothers.

Would Ms. Coulter prefer that a woman stay with a man who beats her? A man who is presenting a poor example to the children of what a man should be?

Does she think a woman should just turn her head the other way when her husband cheats on her and brings home a sexually transmitted disease? What kind of example does that give to the children? That it’s OK to cheat on your wife? That is a very dysfunctional marriage, and as a single mother who has been there, with two very successful grown daughters, I take offense at her generalization that all children will turn into juvenile delinquents. My older daughter graduated summa cum laude in three and a half years with a degree in International Business and a minor in Spanish.. She is now a bilingual Spanish teacher and an accomplished pianist who does missions work.

My younger daughter is a recording artist. Both daughters are very active in their churches and they did not turn to drugs, crime or become juvenile delinquents.

I am a returning college student with a GPA of 3.75 with an English/Communications major and a History minor. I plan to go on and pursue my degree as a physician’s assistant. I still have one son at home. Where do we fit in Ms. Coulter’s “stereotypical” view? All of my kids have scored in the top 1-3 percent in the nation all through school.

I think Ms. Coulter’s fame has gone to her head, and the last book I tried to read was full of vapid, hate-filled opinions I could not tolerate. The last and only one I read was “Godless,” which I now believe is a reflection of herself.

She has become a bitter spinster without anyone to love and fills the world with her diatribes. I do NOT want to receive any more of Ms. Coulter’s articles.

I pray that Ms. Coulter has a change of heart and finds love for those who are different and actually not so different from her, because life is too short to be filled with such venom.
